Creating a Landing Page in ThInkific Ready for Pre-Order

When it comes to courses, having a pre-order option is a great way to start marketing and selling your course before you are 100% ready to go. It gives you the chance to get some sales under your belt while still working away.

Thinkific has an option for you to create a pre-order landing page, for your course that looks exactly the same as all your other landing pages, but you get the added benefit of a countdown timer to help build urgency. This works really well if you are having a special pre-launch price before reverting back to your normal pricing.

We took the time to put together a behind the scenes video on what a recording day looks like, and as you can see in our edited version – you wear a lot of different hats and switch from one task to the other.

How to Attract a Market to Your Course

We know that one of the most important functions of having a successful business is having an audience to sell our products or services to. Without an audience, you might stumble along until someone finds you, but this isn’t really going to bring you the clients you are looking for or need to keep your business going.

The key to marketing is an audience. The only way to get an audience is through marketing. So we can see how marketing is essential. But what kind of marketing should you be utilising when it comes to finding an audience for your course or workshop?

Creating & Using Coupons in Thinkific

When creating and selling a course, there may be times you wish to offer a discount to new students or a specific offer to existing or past students.
